The tables under the Properties pane displays properties information based on the selected Asset in the Motive. When an asset is selected, corresponding properties will be displayed at the bottom of the Pane. For properties for the tracking assets (rigid bodies and skeletons) are specific to the selected asset. Default properties for newly created assets can be configured in the [[Application Settings]], [[Skeleton Pane]], or [[Rigid Body Properties|Rigid Bodies Pane]].

The Properties pane can be accessed by clicking on the [[Image:Toolbar_Properties_Icon.png]] icon on the toolbar.  
  
Depending on which item is selected in Motive, corresponding properties will show up at the bottom of the Devices pane.

The [[Properties pane]] lists out the settings configured for selected items.  In Motive, each type of assets has a list of associated properties. These properties determine how the display and tracking of the corresponding items are done in Motive. This page will go over all of the properties, for each type of assets, that can be viewed or configured in Motive.

When a [[Motive Basics#File Management|''Take'']] is selected from the [[Project pane]], related information will be displayed under properties. For Motive 1.10 and above, details of the calibration results can be revisited from a recorded Take. Select a Take in the Project pane, and related calibration results will be displayed under the properties section. This feature is available only for Takes recorded in Motive 1.10 and above.

When a rigid body asset is selected, each tab on the properties section can be used to configure the [[Rigid Body Properties]] for the selected asset. Furthermore, [[Rigid_Body_Tracking#Adjusting_Pivot_Point#Translating_Pivot_Point|transformation]] and [[Rigid_Body_Tracking#Real-time_Information|Real-time information]] of the rigid body and the involved markers can also be monitored in this pane. See also the [[Rigid Body Properties]] page for descriptions on the settings.

The following properties can be configured when the Tracking group is selected from the Devices pane. This properties section configures properties for the whole camera system.
 
 
 
===Camera Settings===
 
<div class="padded">
 
====Filter Switch====
 
:Sets the camera to view either visible or infrared light on cameras equipped with a Filter Switcher. Infrared Spectrum should be selected when the camera is being used for marker tracking applications. Visible Spectrum can optionally be selected for full frame video applications, where external, visible spectrum lighting will be used to illuminate the environment instead of the camera’s IR LEDs. Common applications include reference video and external calibration methods that use images projected in the visible spectrum.
 
 
 
====Automatic Gain Control====
 
:Default: False. Automatic Gain Control feature adjust the camera gain level automatically for best tracking. This feature is available only in Flex 3's and Duo/Trio tracking bars.
 
 
 
====Video Type====
 
:Configures video type for the selected camera. Several modes are available for efficient on-camera image processing. Available modes vary slightly, depending on camera model. Read more from [[Data Recording#Video Types|Data Recording]] page.
 
 
 
====Illumination Type====
 
:Sets the illumination to either Strobed or Continuous.  Strobed illumination will output more light with equivalent power when compared to Continuous and is the ideal choice for standard motion capture volumes.  Continuous is ideal for volumes where external IR interference is potentially an issue (e.g. with IR actuated stereovision systems that cannot synchronize to the OptiTrack cameras, or when other volumes may be within line of sight).
 
</div>
 
  
===Display Options===
+
=Properties=
<div class="padded">
 
====Name====
 
:Sets the name for the selected camera group.
 
 
 
====Camera Color====
 
:Sets the color for camera group members as they appear in the 3D viewport.  Color values are input as standard RGB triplets.
 
 
 
====Visible Cameras====
 
:Selects whether cameras in the group are displayed in the viewport.
 
 
 
====Show Volume====
 
:Selects whether the capture volume (defined as capable of tracking a single marker) is displayed in the viewport.  Enabling this will allow the volume to be displayed as a wire cage around the ground plane where multiple cameras fields of view intersect.  Valid options are True, False (default).
 
 
 
====Camera FOV====
 
:Selects whether camera FOVs are displayed in the viewport.  Camera FOV accurately depicts the frustum angles, while depth is artificially capped.  Actual depth may vary depending on camera settings and marker size.  Enabling this feature can be beneficial in volume visualization for creation and adjustment.  Valid options are True (default), False.
 
 
====Camera Overlap====
 
:Sets the minimum camera overlap necessary for a region to be visualized as part of the capture volume.  Higher numbers represent more camera coverage, but they will tend to reduce the size of the visualized capture volume.  Valid range is 1 to 25 (default 3).
 
 
====Volume Resolution====
 
:Sets the resolution of the capture volume visualization.  A higher number represents a more detailed visualization.  Valid range is 1 to 120 (default 50).
 
 
====Opacity====
 
:Sets the opacity of the volume visualization.  A value of 1 is transparent and 100 is opaque.  Valid range is 1 to 100 (default 100).
 
 
====FOV Intensity====
 
:Sets the opacity of the FOV visualization.  A higher value represents a more opaque volume visualization.  Valid range is 1 to 100 (default 50).
 
</div>
 
 
 
===Advanced===
 
<div class="padded">
 
====Point Cloud====
 
:Indicates which point cloud engine is being used for reconstruct 3D points. Point cloud engine v4.0 provides high quality 3D reconstruction outputs with fast speed computation.
 
 
 
====Synchronization Control====
 
:Determines how late camera frames are dealt with. Timely Delivery will drop late frames, which is ideal for real-time applications where data completeness is secondary to timeliness.  Complete Delivery will hold up processing of frames when a frame is late.  Automatic, which is the default and recommended setting, runs in Timely Delivery mode until it gets a non-trivial percentage of late frames, at which point it will automatically switch to Complete Delivery.
 
 
 
====Fan Mode====
 
:Provides an option to turn off the camera fan during recording, for S250e cameras only.
 
 
 
====Shutter Offset====
 
:Delays the shutter timing of selected tracking camera group for N microseconds.
 
 
 
====Mask Regions====
 
{{Indent|
 
*'''Mask Width (pixels):''' 
 
:Sets the extra pixel coverage (width) for masking visible markers when the mask visible function is used.  A larger number will block a wider grouping of pixels simultaneously.  Valid range is determined by the resolution of the cameras.
 
 
 
*'''Mask Height (pixels):''' 
 
:Sets the extra pixel coverage (height) for masking visible markers when the mask visible function is used.  A larger number will block a wider grouping of pixels simultaneously.  Valid range is determined by the resolution of the cameras.

The Properties pane can be accessed by clicking on the Toolbar Properties Icon.png icon on the toolbar.

The Properties pane lists out the settings configured for selected items. In Motive, each type of assets has a list of associated properties. These properties determine how the display and tracking of the corresponding items are done in Motive. This page will go over all of the properties, for each type of assets, that can be viewed or configured in Motive.

Properties pane when a rigid body is selected

Properties will be listed for recorded Takes, rigid body assets, skeleton assets, force plate device, and NI-DAQ device. Detailed descriptions on each corresponding properties are documented on the following pages:

Advanced Settings

Advanced Settings

The Properties pane contains advanced settings that are hidden by default. Access these settings by going to the menu on the top-right corner of the pane and clicking Show Advanced and all of the settings, including the advanced settings, will be listed under the pane.

The list of advanced settings can also be customized to show only the settings that are needed specifically for your capture application. To do so, go the pane menu and click Edit Advanced, and uncheck the settings that you wish to be listed in the pane by default. One all desired settings are unchecked, click Done Editing to apply the customized configurations.
